In-game ranks have no power here. And I've been here since Open Beta, have seen all the Trek films, watched every episode of TOS, half the TNG episodes, practically all the DS9 and ENT episodes, and about a quarter (at least) of the VOY episodes. The only reason I don't have all of them is money constraints.

And, again, wrong thread! You want Cryptic to unban you? Appeal the ban in Customer Support. Stop hassling people wanting to talk about a Dev update.

Plus, it's "shows" not "show's".

That would be cool, considering the limits of the ship tailor. But, I don't think Cryptic has the resources to do that.

Q: (captainmarshal) When will we be able to fight Tholians in space? I?ve fought them in space on Tribble, but I haven?t seen them in space yet on Holodeck.

Dstahl: Tholians will start showing up when the Starbase you are defending is big enough to draw their interest. When you queue up for a public event, the queue chooses a Starbase to defend at random from one of the people in the queue. In private queues, the Starbase is the queue owner?s Starbase.
I think a good question for next month's AC would be if we would be getting space missions where the Tholians are the sole aggressors, something seperate from the FAs. Maybe even a new Featured Series.

They're working together to deal with Borg, Iconians, and Undine. So yes, the story does advance as you play.

So it's not about needing to get rid of the war. It's just about understanding that by the time you get to VA the war is coming to a close through your actions.
Yeah. I think the way it's setup currently, the existing batch of missions end with us pretty much in December of 2409.

Would be nice to roll that calendar forward.

There might be a chance if the Nexus comes around in 2410 and the new sector block is the region of space with the Nexus in it. Since missions only take place "once," we could conceivably have a Nexus mission in the new block.

I always make a point of correcting this:

The S1 pants had department color piping on the pant legs.

And if the character artist ever does see fit to add that, I'd strongly suggest they use the DS9 Admiral pants as the template since they mesh better with the S1 top than the standard TNG pants to, emphasizing the center seam and making it look more authentically like a one piece.

I liked this month's article a lot. However, this piece I don't see as a valid assessment. My little fleet did indeed grind a lot of dilithium to work on our starbase, because there are things we wanted to add. We did not enjoy it and I've noticed that the flow has tapered off dramatically.

We did the grinding because there is no other way to accomplish anything with starbases. It's boring. I'd far rather play mission content than grind the same handful of dilithium/fleet mark missions.

The only point I'm trying to make is don't assume that becauses numbers crunch that it is all good. When you back players into corners and only give them limited grinds to accomplish certain things, of course the numbers are going to support the idea. There's no other ways for players to do it. It doesn't mean they enjoy it.

Adding dilithium and such to missions will make it more fun for more players. For me personally, while I enjoy some of the new fleet mark missions, I can only do them so many times in a row before I wear out on them. Variety is good. So is immersion.

Actually you can. Play red. It doesn't even take hours.

The rest of the team has fallen off the map, and we only seem to get half truths a majority of the time since PWE has been involved?
So, glad to know I wasn't the only one thinking that...

My question is we will ever see DS9 under Siege! If not will there be a other way to get the DS9 trophy?

Yep, artful dodging of my questions.

Incidentally, what's odyssey47's in-game name, so that I can put him on ignore? Whilst I'm in a 70+ person fleet myself making good progress with the SB, I just don't like the guy.

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots
